Kumon Let's Cut Paper
Learning to safely use a pair of scissors universally seems to bring extraordinary joy to young children. Your child will learn how to hold and control scissors. He will improve his skills as he works through the book. Many pages offer helpful tips for the parents and all are sturdy enough to manage, but not so thick as to be difficult to cut.

I got this to try with my 5 year old. He's a sweet kid who's a perfectionist and cutting has led to tears, frustration, and melt downs. This workbook has been wonderful for him, he loves that he's practicing, he doesn't feel pressured, and really likes the pictures and the different types of quick projects they create. We will definitely be looking to try the next level for Kumon cutting.
My 3 year old loved doing this program. She had so much fun cutting out the pages, which are done in vibrantly-colored but simple art that is very attractive. It helped her build her small motor skills greatly and she became very advanced at cutting skills.
I have two children, a 7 year old girl & a 4 year old boy. They both love the Kumon workbooks. I have to stop by 4 year from trying to finish an entire book in 1 evening. He loves the cutting books best and especially loves receiving this certificate at the end. The books for my 7 year old are very good too. We have enjoyed the money series along with the crafts. We enjoy going through the books together. My 7 year old enjoys helping her younger brother complete books she has already completed. The books also use a very nice paper and are bright and colorful.
I have found the Kumon series of workbooks to be useful for all of my children who have used them. The books dealing with fine motor skills are excellent; some of the pages can be done by young children with practically no assistance (such as in the cutting, tracing, and maze books), while others need a bit of direction from a sibling or parent (such as folding and crafts). I have mixed feelings about some of the math skills workbooks: The money workbooks are quite good and have some variety in the pages, but I think the time books are somewhat tedious and aren't as effective. The number workbooks have some pages that involve a lot of writing which my children found boring and tiresome, but are still useful overall.
These workbooks are so appealing and the concepts made so clear. My children especially loved the number bundle.
